One more tag on that sked to Fascination I believe (Update-this was actually a report of their final tally for the day not another fish). That’s it for today, recap in the morning.
Cease fishing, final sked to come.
Viking II tagged 200lbs.
Bill Collector fish tagged. (Outside the comp, on Kekoa we also just released a 300lber for Roger.)
Amokura has tagged two fish on that sked. I heard their hookups but not the tags. Moana lost a nice fish at the side of the boat for Andrey. 6 tags so far today.
Kanoahoee’s 2nd fish was 150 to Amanda again.
I missed a tag for Reelly Black at 250Lbs for Andrew Hungerford. Fascination’s fish was caught by Roen Quinn.
Kanahoee tagged their second fish of the tournament. No details yet.
Fascination fish tagged at 200lbs. Amokura seems to have been hooked up for a while.
No other fish reported on the sked. Kanahoee’s fish was an 850lber for Amanda Thompson. Well done! Congrats Amanda and Sharky and crew, first fish of the comp!
Kanahoee tagged just before the sked. Details soon.
Hattitude lost fish. Sked’s coming up soon so we’ll see if I’ve missed anything. The repeater station sounds a bit dodgy today.
We’ve just passed the one hour mark and all is quiet on the radio. I have not heard any calls of hookups yet.
Start fishing, start fishing, start fishing. Castille III is radio boat this year.
The sail past is over and boats have made their way to the edge for start fishing. There are 24 boats competing this year. Start fishing is 11am.
